4) “You shall treat the stranger who sojourns with you as the native among you, and you shall love him as yourself, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.” — Lev. 19:34.

It’s right for Christians to ask for a way for people like Jimmy to get legal.
5) There is no mercy here. If you are wondering about Jimmy’s crimes that were the rationale for deporting him after being brought here as a 6 month old, they were related to his mental illness. Court records show ... politico.com/story/2019/08/…
6) We have to develop better ways to handle this type of thing. There has to be a way to address these issues without doing this.
